I was very honored to be asked to take Maranda's before prom pictures this last Friday. Her Mom, Mana and I met her and her friends around 8 pm. I am not the best at night time photography, so I was a little nervous about it. They were beautiful all dressed up!! Poor Maranda had a blister on the back of her foot from her new shoes. The guard where we were had some bandaids and gave her some. I am so glad he had some. I felt so bad for her. The pictures turned out pretty well. The ones I was really looking forward to seeing, did not turn out. I have a hard time with focusing sometimes. It would have been a great picture. I did get some good ones, so I am overall happy with them. I have another before prom to take in two weeks of my art student, Rebecca. I will take those in the day time, so I am not worried to much about those!! I had a fun time and hope to do more of this type of photography in the future!!
Last Thursday, April 15, I met my sis-in-law and my niece downtown to take some pictures. I figured her being four, I would get 30 minutes out of her before she got bored. We took pictures for an hour and fifteen minutes. (404 pictures to be exact) She got out of the car ready to pose. She would run down the street and pick a spot and start posing. I really did not have to do much but operate the camera. We had a lot of fun! Then we went to the Peanut Depot and then feed the birds on the street! Now I have to work on getting my nephews to come take pictures with me and their mom! That will be so much fun! I would love to take pictures of my other nieces also!
Pictures of the day... She is so cute, I could not choose just a few!!
I have been busy this past week doing fun projects. I got to help a friend of mine take daycare pictures, work on a photo book, and other stuff. I even had a friend call me today and say that if she didn't get a hold of me that she was ready with the phone book to look up my relatives to see where I was.
I put together my first photo book for a friend of mine. I really enjoyed working on it. It turned out pretty well. My friend seemed to like it. I am in the middle of making one of Mana. I have bought a new fun toy. It is the Your Story binder and laminator. I can't wait to use it!!
Today, I took Mana to see the Hannah Montana movie. I would have to say it was good. Mana loved it! The cutest part was that there were two little girls up front jumping around and dancing to the songs! Precious!! Everyone clapped at the end! Great group of movie goers in the theatre!! The screen had some problems. The picture went off the screen because it would not stay open. They had to start the movie over to get it fixed. For watching the first part of the movie twice, we got free tickets on the way out. Now I can take Mana to see Monsters vs. Aliens!
Our church Easter Musical was tonight. They did a fabulous job!! It was very moving! Some friends and I went to Sonic afterwards.
Pictures of the day.....
"At the Movies""At the Easter Musical" Not the best pictures, but with no flash, no tripod and not being able to see how to set the camera, I will be happy with what I got!"At Sonic"
I am not much of a tv watcher. I have a few shows I like, but not one I have to be home to watch or even know what night they come on. I usually just scroll through the guide and find something that I might be interested in. I do have three shows I like now....
I have been working on all kinds of fun projects this week during the day time! Adjusting photographs, making graduation announcements, and designing posters are a few of the projects!! I even braved the bees to take some pictures of the beautiful wisteria in my front yard.
Mana is taking the S.A.T. tests at school so she does not have any homework this week!!! We sat down together last night and had a movie night and ate pizza. We watched "Happily Never After 2". It was ok. I didn't really like the first one either. Mana likes them and that is what counts when watching them.
I finally got to watch "Twilight." It was a good movie. It sort of made me want to read the books, but not enough for me to go and buy them. My friend has them. Maybe I will borrow them from her. Not much for reading. I loose concentration to fast. It has to be completely quiet for me to read. That does not happen around my house very often!!
